Title : Marriage Sermons, Polemical Sermons, and “The Wife of Bath’s Prologue”: A Generic Excursus [Instead of reading “The Wife of Bath’s Prologue” against an antifeminist literary tradition, the author reads the work against medieval sermons on marriage. In the fourteenth century, these sermons were both for and against women, and in this poem the Wife of Bath assumes the authoritative stance of a preacher on marriage. The author sees parallels between the “Prologue” and the marriage sermons of Jacob of Voragine. Moreover, the poem’s focus on women’s speech and power refers to fourteenth century struggles over who had the authority to preach. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
